CAMBRIDGE SPRINGS, Pa. – Pennsylvania authorities were searching for the owner of a runaway wallaby Saturday, after officials captured the animal on a rural road in the state's far northwest.
The Pennsylvania Game Commission said in a statement the native Australian marsupial -- which resembles a small kangaroo -- was tranquilized Wednesday afternoon after being found on a road near Cambridge Springs, Pa.
"My landlord saw it, so I went down and took a photo of it," former Game Commission biologist aide Sarah Dippold said. "I forwarded the photo to the Game Commission's Northwest Region office."
The animal is currently being cared for at a licensed animal facility until its owner is identified.
